Civil Engineering

About Department

Civil engineering is the discipline of global creator to meet the fundamental needs of human beings. Civil engineering provides comforts public life. It traditionally covers streams such as geotechnical engineering, surveying, construction technology, structural engineering, environmental engineering, transportation engineering, material engineering, urban planning, water resources engineering, architectural drawing, quantity analysis, earthquake engineering etc.

The Department of Civil Engineering was established in 2017 in full-fledged with an intake capacity of 60 students per annum which further increased to 120 students per annum in 2011.The course study involves in expansion of latest technology such as Computer Aided Drawing (AutoCAD), structure detailing, Surveying by Auto Level and Total Station etc., along with a rich Civil Engineering Lab. facilities, which impart high quality education and training to the students. The Civil engineering department has young, energetic and industrial experienced faculty members to bridge the gap between the academics and latest technology.

Aims & Objectives

Vision:

  1. To become a centre of excellence in infrastructure development and skill Development.
  2. To occupy a place in eminent institute of the country and guide the student to become a responsible citizen and a competent professional.

Mission:

  1. To impart high quality technical education and skill for the upliftment for present era job demand
  2. To provide basic knowledge and strong foundation of civil engineering
  3. To aim for higher education setup with continuous improvement
  4. To become regional focal point in the human development in civil engineering

Objectives:

The main objective of civil engineering department is to disseminate the knowledge to the student to cater the demand of builders/contractors and construction industry people in and around the globe. This field of engineering enables the students to learn planning, analysis, design, construction method and maintenance of buildings, roads, dams, bridges, etc. They are also taught on utilization of natural resources such as water, minerals along with environmental education, transportation and urban engineering.

HOD Message

An affectionate welcome to the Civil Engineering discipline. Civil Engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of physically built works like roads, bridges, canals, dams and buildings. Earliest civil engineering works include pyramids in Egypt, Highways by roman engineers, Great Wall of China, Stupas in Sri Lanka.. To raise the life standard of the people's, A country has to provide good infrastructure to its people, and civil engineers plays a vital role in this.

n our Civil Engg. Department we are imparting the knowledge of Theory & Practical on Building construction, Soil Mechanics, structural-design, Surveying and Building Drawing and many more subjects. Apart from this department is committed for all around development of our students. Infrastructure in India is going to be developed at large scale and high pace in the next coming years.

So, we are contributing to meet these requirements in the form of giving quality Civil Engineers to the society.Civil engineers are important to the society as they are often referred as ‘Builders of NATION’.
